Our story

Situated near Springsure in the Central Highlands of Central Queensland we have been successfully breeding Alpacas since August 2010 and have lived in the area since 2006. We at Rosegum have a collective knowledge from being involved with a range of different livestock which has proven to have been a wonderful backbone starter for us in this industry.

We have been fortunate to have some of the most well respected breeders from all over Australia as our mentors during our Alpaca journey, without them, we would not be where we are today. We also have a wonderful following of breeders that have started their journey via us and we in turn are mentoring them.

Concentrating on the magnificent Suri with its incredible lustre and silky handle we couldn't be happier with what we have been producing. With carefully choosen females and males to compliment our breeding program, we have been able to produce amazing animals particularly suited to the Queensland climate. Being one of larger breeders of Suri in Qld,  we needed to make sure our genetic pool is diverse and ever evolving, therefore we have an impressive line up of males here which enables us to produce the best animals on offer around.

Producing fleeces for the ever growing commercial industry, our fleeces have been sold all over australia in small and larger amounts to be used in end products that we also stock in our shop (follow via Rosegum AlpacaWare on facebook for the interim until we have the website complete) .

There is great opportunity out there for each and every owner/breeder, no matter what your goal maybe, for these incredibly versatile and environmentally friendly animals.

Our sales page boasts healthy, strong animals. All of our girls are sold with a fertility guarantee and if pregnant, they will come with a live Cria guarantee. If you can't find what you want, please contact us, as we often have other animals for sale that aren't listed and if we don't have what you are after, we will help you find it. We offer discounts for multiple purchases by negotiation.

We are happy to give ongoing advice and support to all alpaca enthusiasts wishing to own and enjoy alpacas. It is always wonderful to chat alpaca with fellow enthusiasts! And also we remember well what it is like when you first own alpaca! The questions are endless! and so interesting to learn more about.

Feel free to contact us to arrange a time to check out these majestic animals for yourself. They will capture your heart!
